Public sector is key to Visakhapatnam’s development, explains C. H. Narasingha Rao

Comrade Narasingha Rao is presently a State Secretariat member of the CPI(M) in Andhra Pradesh and the State Vice-President of the Centre for Indian Trade Unions (CITU). He is also the district secretary of the party in Visakhapatnam, which is hosting the 21st Congress of the CPI(M). He is a leading trade union activist among public sector workers in and around Visakhapatnam, such as the Vizag Steel Plant. Our social media team spoke to Comrade Rao on how the city of Visakhapatnam developed in the 1950s and 1960s under government policies that promoted public sector industries. The city developed because of the establishment and growth of public sector industries. However, after 1991, city development has been in crisis due to the disinvestment policies of the government. People of Visakhapatnam are facing the brunt of the problem of unemployment due to the weakening of public sector industries.
